Professor Susan J. Carroll received the Lifetime Contribution Award from the UK Political Studies Association. The judges noted:
"There will be few UK gender and politics scholars who have not benefited from the pioneering work on women and U.S. politics written by Carroll. Her advising and mentoring of junior scholars is one of her most important legacies that has also led to increased numbers of gender and politics scholars."
Professor Carroll was honoured at the PSA's award ceremony in London, hosted by Chanel 4 News presenter Jon Snow.
Professor Carroll also gave the PSA Annual Lecture, hosted by the London School of Economics. Her lecture was entitled "More Women Can Run: Why Women Remain Underrepresented in Politics".
